About this deal

What sets The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes apart from the original trilogy is its exploration of the Capitol's perspective on The Hunger Games. How could life possibly ever be fine again for this young girl tortured and forced into murder by her government because she wanted to protect her little sister?

Step into the captivating world of Panem with The Hunger Games series, a literary phenomenon that has captivated readers of all ages.Normally, I would say that the movies are usually incomparable the books they were based off of, but in this case, it's pretty close. Societies are split into 12 zones each responsible for delivering key societal needs such as coal, food, military etc. The bottom line is that it doesn't pay to be a female character in superheroland because you'll inevitably wind up raped, maimed, tortured (in a sexy way!

The Hunger Games is a trilogy with a prequel released in 2020 titled The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. The idea of the games are highly ingenious and appeal to our morbid fascination of duelling to the death.

It actually feels to me like the story has been censored and stripped down to the bone in an attempt to make it appropriate for as wide an audience as possible. Suzanne Collins does a wonderful job of creating these 2 characters with very different characteristics and talents. But I did enjoy Harry Potter because it wasn't a completely unrecognizable world but instead a parallel universe. Portato con me sull’isola (non proprio deserta, ma il distanziamento sociale aiuta a creare l’atmosfera) come lettura d’evasione ha svolto appieno il suo dovere, tanto che l’ho divorato in una decina di giorni (1440 pagine, non so se mi spiego). Going against one of the major rules of good writing, Mockingjay is an exercise in telling instead of showing.

Personally, I think the ending is about as Hollywood happy ending as it could be made without betraying the themes of the book. Because they are reading for entertainment, and expected an engaging plot with relatable characters and themes that would take them on a journey to another world. The Hunger Games trilogy consists of three books and a prequel, including The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay - and its prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. Just like the right spices in an exotic dish, teen angst can work wonders in a knowing hand, but the story overdoses on it and never recovers.The games allow us to root for an underdog as long as we can draw empathy towards that person or persons.
